    The latest Adobe Reader and Acrobat zero-day attack is part of a larger, longer-term targeted attack campaign aimed mainly at stealing intellectual property from the U.S. and U.K. industries and government agencies, according to Symantec. Symantec identified the malware family involved in the attacks as Sykipot, which has been used in targeted attacks for the past two years and possibly as far back as 2006. Organizations hit in the latest wave of attacks were mainly U.S. and U.K. defense contractors, telecommunications firms, computer hardware companies, chemical companies, energy companies, and government agencies.
